Reproductive Conditions and Disease Research Program Area

The AKC Canine Health Foundation supports basic science discovery and clinical research into the treatment of reproductive disorders through the Reproduction Research Program Area. This research program area supports research into canine reproductive tract biology, physiology, endocrinology and neuroendocrinology as it relates to reproductive health and disease. This research program area also supports Reproductive Medicine, including the etiology, pathophysiology, prevention and treatment of male or female infertility, with particular emphasis on defining those conditions that have a significant genetic or epigenetic component. As with all other research program areas, collaborative, multi-disciplinary teams of investigators who can approach discovery research from a multi-‘omics’ perspective will be considered more competitive than a genomic approach working in isolation.

Key canine health problems addressed by this research program include, but are not limited to:
